The best of D23: Singing "Let's Go Fly A Kite" with Richard Sherman

Behold the Disney legend behind the music of "It's a Small World," "The Tiki Room," Winnie The Pooh, The Aristocats and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in action. Watch as Richard Sherman joins Jason Schwartzman and B.J. Novak for a rousing singalong of "Let's Go Fly A Kite."


Richard Sherman and his equally musical brother Robert were responsible for a giant chunk of Disney greatness, and they're both prominently featured in Saving Mr. Banks, the movie story about how Disney dealt with the sticky situation of turning Mary Poppins from a beloved book into a movie.

The Sherman brothers will be played by Schwartzman and B.J. Novak in the movie, which is why they appeared together at this past weekend's D23 expo to sing "Let's Go Fly A Kite" to close out the show.

In other D23 singing actor news, Tom Hiddleston sang "The Bear Necessities" on stage while announcing that he would be playing the cartoon version of Captain Hook on the new Tinkerbell animated series, which will reveal Hook's secret backstory.

The Sherman Brothers were amazing. If anyone hasn't seen The Boys: The Sherman Brothers Story, you really should.

I wish Disney would do more documentaries like that.
